North Shore Wild Coast Training Camp

Price
$125.00

APRIL 5TH, 6TH, AND 7TH IN TOFINO, B.C.

Join Forerunners North Shore for a weekend of sand, surf, relaxation, and of course, a bit of running thrown in as well! We’ll be staying at Ocean Village Resort on MacKenzie Beach near Tofino, BC on the weekend of April 5th, 6th, and 7th. This is one week before the Vancouver Sun Run and four weeks before the Vancouver Marathon and Half Marathon; a perfect time to refresh your mind, body, and spirit!

Cost is $125 (tax included) and covers running coaching by Jerry Ziak on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, a 60 minute yoga session by Lisa McDougall, a 90 minute sports psychology presentation by Shannon Thompson, and a New Balance “Wild Coast Training” technical t-shirt (transportation, accommodation, and food are not included).

The plan is to book accommodations (as well as facilitate cabin sharing if needed) by December 7th. You’ll still be able to register for this camp (up to a maximum of 30 people) after this date, but, as a group, we’re limited to a total of 10 cabins at Ocean Village, so you may need to stay at a different location if you wait too long.  Please call Jerry at Forerunners North Shore (604-982-0878) with any questions.
